David Revere McFadden to Retire as Museum of Arts and Design’s Chief Curator

09 August, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell



The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) has announced that David Revere McFadden will retire at the end of the year from his position of William and Mildred Lasdon chief curator and vice president of collections and programs.

During his 16-year tenure at the museum, McFadden organized more than 40 exhibitions, including the “Materials and Process” series. The series yielded exhibits such as Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary (2008), which inaugurated MAD’s new home at Columbus Circle and broke all attendance records for the institution.

“David has brought to MAD an incredible curatorial vision, breaking new ground for the institution,” museum board chairman Lewis Kruger said in a statement. “He has made a lasting impact in the cultural world through his cutting-edge exhibitions. His legacy to MAD and the field is immense, and all of us at MAD are grateful for his extraordinary contributions and vision.”

McFadden plans to pursue independent curatorial and writing projects. Opening at MAD in spring 2014, his Inspired exhibit will explore the origins of the artistic impulse. The series will bring together more than 100 new, recent, and never-before-seen works acquired within the last five years.
